Today we celebrate:

My Way Day – Do you have trouble with people trying to tell you what to do or trying to get you to change the way you do things? I certainly do. Well, today you can tell them to stuff it because you're doing things MY way. I mean, YOUR way. Oh, you know what I mean.

National PTA Founders Day – The PTA was founded on this day in 1897, although it was originally called the National Congress of Mothers. It was created by Alice Birney and Phoebe Hearst to support parent involvement in the education of children and has been going strong ever since.

World Human Spirit Day – We celebrate this day by silently meditating for 2 minutes at 3pm EST in order to come together with the rest of the world with our minds and spirits and celebrate our connection with the rest of the human race. Our goal is to request peace and harmony and healing in the world. The more people participate, the greater the connection will be. The people who created it in 2003 say that as you meditate together, there will hopefully be enough people doing it at the same time that you will be able to feel a connection to the rest of the world.

National Champion Crab Races Day – I was astounded to discover that there is a National Crab Racing Association. These are people who race hermit crabs professionally. I'm not sure whether the hermit crabs are also considered professionals. But if you and your friends have some hermit crabs, consider having a race today.

Random Acts Of Kindness Day – This is the wrap up to Random Acts Of Kindness Week. Find something nice to do for someone or maybe even multiple someones. Don't wait to be asked, and don't wait around for thanks. Strike fast, do good, and be gone. Hopefully it will be contagious. The creator of this day is Josh de Jong, a New Zealander, I think.

Washington's Birthday – A United States Federal holiday that is celebrated on the third Monday of February, this is a day to honor our first President, George Washington. Some states have combined this day with Abraham Lincoln's birthday to make.....

President's Day – A day to celebrate our past Presidents, Abraham Lincoln and George Washington in a combined celebration. Not all states combine the days like this so if you live in a state that has individual Lincoln and Washington days, please feel free to ignore this one.

To celebrate today, join your local PTA and organize a crab race in all of the schools in your area. If someone else tries to take over and tell you to do it differently, tell them you're doing it your way. Meditate at 3pm EST for two minutes and head to the library to find books on Washington and Lincoln to read to your children. Perform a random act of kindness while you are there and hold doors open for people and pick up anything that anyone drops. Maybe you can even help someone find a book they are looking for.
